Ramp Riot is Team 341’s annual off-season event. With its humble roots as an 8 team scrimmage back in 2000, Ramp Riot now draws 36 teams and over 2,500 spectators yearly. Every November, those 36 teams (representing up to 8 states) come together to battle it out in arena-style competition.

However, Ramp Riot is much more than just a competition. Attending teams use Ramp Riot to introduce rookie members to the FIRST® atmosphere and gear up for the coming season. Ramp Riot has also hosted helpful seminars and information sessions for teams to share what they know and learn from each other. Community members find plenty of fun between matches with face painting and robot driving zones!
